Re: Traceroute explanation

This is just a guess, but I'll bet the route changed while you were measuring it.

Traceroute sends a request, awaits a response, sends a request, ... Suppose that the route was

172.28.0.1 -> 10.16.0.2
           -> 41.200.16.1
           -> 172.17.2.25
           -> 213.140.58.10
           -> 195.22.195.125
           -> 4.69.151.13
           -> 213.200.68.61
           -> somewhere else

and after the test got that far, two systems got inserted into the path before level3, resulting in the route entering 
level3 at a different point, 4.69.141.249. What you now have is

172.28.0.1 -> 10.16.0.2
           -> 41.200.16.1
           -> 172.17.2.25
           -> 213.140.58.10
           -> 195.22.195.125
           -> unknown
           -> unknown
           -> 4.69.141.249
           -> 77.67.66.154
           -> and so on

The effect would be to get a result like this.

Next time you see something like this, suggestion: repeat the traceroute and see what you get.
